A New York judge ruled Wednesday that 10 employees who refused the vaccine and were fired by the New York City Department of Education (DOE) must be reinstated with back pay, according to court documents.

The case involved school principals, teachers and other education officials who sued after city officials rejected their religious exemption to the vaccine mandate. New York State Supreme Court Judge Ralph J. Porzio ruled that the city’s denials of religious accommodation to certain employees were unlawful, “arbitrary and capricious,” and that the DOE must reinstate the teachers with back pay as a result of violating their rights, according to the ruling.

“This court finds no rational basis for the seemingly blanket denial of any religious exemption to all classroom teachers,” the ruling reads.

“The decision to summarily deny the classroom teachers amongst the Panel Petitioners based on an undue hardship, without any further evidence of individualized analysis, is arbitrary, capricious, and unreasonable. As such, each classroom teacher amongst the Panel Petitioners is entitled to a religious exemption from the Vaccine Mandate,” the ruling continues.

New York City’s vaccine mandate for all DOE workers was in effect until Feb. 10, 2023, according to The New York Post.

The New York State Unified Court System previously ruled in March that New York City must rehire and provide back pay to employees fired because of the city’s vaccine mandate. Hundreds of teachers and education workers in New York City lost their jobs for refusing to comply with New York City’s vaccine mandate in 2021 and 2022.

The New York City DOE did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

IMPORTANT NOTE TO WND READERS: Today’s ruling elites champion policies every previous generation of Americans would have regarded as outright evil. At the top of that list would be the supremely radioactive issue – illuminated by the hit summer film “Sound of Freedom” – of the widespread trafficking and sexual slavery of children, as well as the shocking prevalence of pedophiles in the United States of America. Indeed, the U.S. is the largest market for child sexual abuse in the world.

According to Tim Ballard, who has led many missions rescuing sex-trafficked children around the world, the Biden administration actually ENABLES AND PROMOTES the trafficking and sexual slavery of children with its horrendous border policies, its push for early sexualization of children, championing children’s “right to consent” on everything including mutilating transgender surgeries, and so on.

“Pedophiles are sitting back right now,” says Ballard, “and going, ‘We’ve been pushing this agenda for decades, and now we don’t have to push any more, because the left is taking care of it for us’ – IN AMERICA!”

Ballard’s concerns are confirmed by Tara Lee Rodas, a Health and Human Services whistleblower who recently testified before Congress that under Joe Biden, “THE U.S. GOVERNMENT HAS BECOME THE MIDDLEMAN IN A LARGE-SCALE, MULTI-BILLION-DOLLAR CHILD TRAFFICKING OPERATION.”

But that’s just the beginning. The whole, secret criminal mega-enterprise of child sex trafficking and the global elites’ affinity for pedophilia is exposed as never before in the August issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, in a groundbreaking issue titled “THE NEW AMERICAN SLAVE TRADE: How the Biden regime enables and promotes child sex trafficking in the U.S.A.” WHISTLEBLOWER is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
